Some notes on Spam Control & New Users

Nice notes. I will be more careful and try to walk the chalk now. This is my first one.
Here in the the cyber USA, the semi unofficial greeting bots are released to test if you are a bot or not, so if you please, hop down the chalk line while alternately touching your nose with each had and your head tilted back while singing "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt". if you pass you will be considered a "Not-Bot".

Reading directions is important. I clearly didn't do that since I have not really been able to use much of the site since I opened it in March of this year. Oops. Number 1

I'm "not a bot", I'm just new, and looking for campaignionship... couldn't resist the pun.
Greetings, "Not a bot". I am the official self-aware unofficial greeting bot. Welcome to En World.

Might be helpful for newbies such as myself if somewhere in the FAQ it actually explained this and 'how to create your first post' as opposed to the current oblique references and miscellaneous links to elsewhere.

I'm still not sure how I create a 'new thread' but if I understand correctly I need to post three replies to other posts even if it is just 'Wheee - cool!' of some other rubbish and maybe a 'Create New Post' button will magically appear?

Onwards and upwards...

That sounds mostly correct, except you can post the "whee" post here. This thread is explicitly here just for that purpose.

Also, greetings and salutations from the officially unofficial En World Greeting bot.
 
To post or not to post... that is the question

Post? Hmm... Fence post, lamp post, post hole digger, postage, postal, postmaster, apostle, postgame, postime, goalpost, postgraduate, postseason, imposter, postmortem, and posthumous. I could think of more, but... I figure that's enough posts for today. :cool:
